Golden Bell Awards winners

Taipei, Sept. 29 (CNA) Radio Taiwan International (RTI), the country's national broadcaster, was the biggest winner at the 54th Golden Bell Awards in the category of radio on Saturday with four awards.

RTI, which received 11 nominations, won for best educational culture program, best lifestyle program, best variety music program, and best variety music program host.

A representative from RTI who accepted the award for best educational culture program said the radio show "Shih Ching Yeh Mien Mien" (詩情也綿綿) aims to promote Taiwan's culture and language.

"In order to promote Taiwan's language and culture, we have organized many Taiwanese authors and writers to come onto the show," she said, adding that the program reflects the beauty of Taiwan through its literature.

The host of the show Lale Lin (府城) is currently overseas and was unable to personally accept the award, she added.

The best lifestyle program was won by RTI's "Chuan Shih Chieh Tsui Liang Te Kuang" (全世界最亮的光), which interviews and introduces people from across Taiwan who have made achievements in various areas, such as arts, music, and film.

The award was accepted by the program's host singer-songwriter Ardor Huang (流氓阿德).

The best variety music program was won by RTI's "Na Hsieh Nien Wo Men I Chi Chang Ti Ko" (那些年我們一起唱的歌), while the best variety music program host was won by the show's hosts Kuan Jen-chien (管仁健) and Li Hui-chih (黎慧芝).

Established in 1928, RTI is one of the world's oldest radio stations and broadcasts news and programs in 13 languages, according to its website. The radio station's goal is to share information about Taiwan with the rest of the world, reflecting its mission as the national broadcaster of the country.

A total of 126 shows vied for 26 awards at this year's ceremony, which was held at National Sun Yat-sen Memorial Hall Saturday.

Meanwhile, there was no Golden Bell special award this year for an individual who has made a major contribution to broadcasting because no one on the shortlist met the standards set by the jury.
